Letters: Nash poem addresses blight of billboards

9:55 AM, Jan. 28, 2013  |  Comments

Bill Bollom's column (Jan. 25) on billboard blight immediately brought to mind the following poem by Ogden Nash: 'Song of the Open Road' - I think I will never see, A billboard lovely as a tree, Perhaps, unless the billboards fall, I will never see a tree at all.

The state is arguing about whether to allow new mining because of possible blight, but billboards are allowed to flourish. In the immortal words of Pogo: "We have met the enemy, and he is us".
